I'm looking into package management, installation and configuration
issues at the moment.
There's a lot of stuff out there (thanks to everyone who replied to
my post on dpkg stuff).

I had a quick look at the Archlinux site,
but it didn't have much to say about Pacman.
Are you willing to say a little bit about it?
And given that apt-get is possible on RPM based systems,
why should I be interested?
